NEW YORK, Nov. 24. (Special.)

Overtime Pay Granted to Some of

WASHINGTON, Nov. 24. A -new
wage and working agreement was
signed late today between the rail
road administration and officials of
the Brotherhood of Maintenance of
Way Employes and Railway Shop La
borers. '
While demands of the union were
not fully met, the eight-hour basic
day was established for track labor
ers and others of that classification,
and time and a half pay after
eight hours was provided. Most of
the other employes included under
the agreement will receive time and

Signing of the new contract by
Director-General Hines ended nego

contract also provides that it shall
be applicable during the period of
federal control unless notice of 30
days is given of iCs cancellation.

at 11 o'clock today that they would

day of proceedings which were char-at-terized
by Congressman Sicgel a:s a

taining their point.
In an investigation of the "strike"
which was immediately begun by the
committee, whose members, hailing
from the west, expressed frank aston
ishment that such things were pos
sible, several reasons were developed
why the problem that confronts the
present administrative officials at the
island is difficult.

He was about to leave the island for

At the committee's request he told
his clients the law required them to

reiterated their refusal to attend the

announced that the deportation hear

SEATTLE, Wash., Nov. 2V tSpe
cial.) James R. Crawford. Arctic
hunter and trapper and member of
the second Stefansson expedition, is
..f r.t v frnxpn north for the first
time in 15 years and expresses sur
prise that the general public credits
the existence of a lost tribe of .Scan
dinavians in the Arctic known gen
erally as Stefansson's blonde Eskimos.
The so-called blonde tsKimos un
covered by Stefansson, he says, ana
he declares that Stefansson docs not
disagree with him, are nothing more
than a "throw back" as he terms n,
of the first white explorers that went
into the north. Crawford was witn
Stefansson when he across the
blondes" and had an opportunity to
tudy them and discuss them with the
great explorer.
Only Few Are Fund.
Mr. Stefansson himself will tell
you that- mere is lime pi
of these natives being descendants
of Eric the Red or any other of the
ancient Vikings." Mr. Crawford said
tonight. "On Victoria Land there are
probably three tribes or villages of
natives at least in which these quaint
Eskimos are to be found. There are
less than a dozen so far as we were l
able to learn in the whole land.
They had gray eyes, light eyebrows,
reddish brown hair, and their skin
was slightly lighter than , thtir
brethren, but the skin color would
not be noticed at first. It is so like
the color of the other natives.
"The natives made it known that
they had never seen white men be
fore and it is very probable that
they did not, as Mr. Stefansson's party
was undoubtedly the first in that
nart of the world in their time. Their
r.sinm. however, did see white
men. probably men looking for new
land, who did not live to get back to
civilization. Such expeditions are not
infrequent in the history of the north.
The recurrence of the features of the
whites in different villages is rare.
"There was one little girl who pos
sessed the most pronounced marking
of all. She was the daughter of two
old natives who were as dusky as any
of the northern natives, whose hair

WASHINGTON, Nov. 24. There was
no word today from the Mexican gov
ernment in answer to the sharp note
from the state department demand
ing the immediate release of William
O. Jenkins. American consular agent
at Pucbla. All day officials waited
for a note they thought might be
handed to them by thB Mexican em
bassy here, in view of reports Sunday
night that a long dispatch relating
to the Jenkins case had reached the
embassy from Mexico City.
So far as the ft ate department was
able to learn, Jenkins still was
and in the Mexican penitentiary on
charges that he had conspired with
rebel bandits who kidnr.ped him and
'orifd hir.i to ?ay a ransom of ap
proximately $150,000.
Note tliNunsied In Mexico.
The department was in constant
communication today with the Amer
ican embassy in Mexico City and was
advised that the cabinet has discussed
the American note and called Gover
nor Cabrera into conference. Gover
nor Cabrera is a brother of Luis Ca

one of the most bitter anti-Ameri

situation to be so acute that he has

Mexican officials have caused re

soldiers, but ter the following offi
cial announcement was made:
"It has been definitely decided that
the allies who fell together for the
same cause should remain together in
death until circumstances permit of
the returning of the bodies to the
families for whom they sacrificed
The proposed law forbidding the ex
humation of soldier dead for three
years did not pass at the last session
of the chamber of deputies, but the
foreign office expects that it will be
adopted soon. This bill specifies
delay ' in exhumation of three years
from the promulgation of the law, but
it is expected that this period will be
shortened. At the foreign office it is
said to be probahle that the exhuma
tion will commence considerably be
fore January, 1922.
The French government is anxious
to hasten matters, as French families
are also pressing, but there are thou
sands of unidentified dead and trans
portation facilities are utterly inade
quate to move the 1. 500,000 bodies in
